Question 1: I am an Indian born, Australian Citizen on a E3 visa. Does applying for a Green Card jeopardize my chances of getting E3 visa renewed in the future? Considering that there is a 4 to 5 years wait to get a Visa number after filing for I-140 for an Indian born person and considering that E3 visa is only valid for 2 years, I have to extend my E3 visa atleast 3 times before I get the Green Card approved. Do you think that I can get away extending my E3 visa 3 times even though GC process is pending? Question 2: My wife is on E3D visa and has EAD. She is working now and can her employer start GC process and will that jeopardize her E3D visa renewal and/or my E3 visa renewal? What is the Best/Safe bet? Applying GC on my name or on my wife's name? Both are qualified educationally and both have jobs in the U.S.
